Blink's 1973 AMF Crestliner 12' V-Hull (Update 03-15-12)

Aight yall, so i have changed my mind about carpet, and gotten a lot done. She is fishable as of today, and i have only a few more things i want and/or need to do to her before i will be done. 1. Grind off the angles on the top lip. 2. Add pulls for the hatches. Still thinking the straps with loops ...

Best deck waterproofing before gluing carpet??

sounds good. Thanks!

Best deck waterproofing before gluing carpet??

This is a great thread. I am definitely going to use the Henrys 263. One question i had is, while reading the label on the Chapco (which is what they have at Lowes here), i saw that it said it not for use on treated or sealed surfaces. So should i put my 3 coats of spar urethane on my plywood before...

So I was looking at this outdoor carpet adhesive at Lowes yesterday, and it said not to use it on sealed wood and not to seal the wood.

What is the deal here? Do i still seal with 3 coats of spar urethane and then do the carpet???

Blink's 1973 AMF Crestliner 12' V-Hull (Update 03-14-12)

Oh another thing I did. I had all my holes pre drilled to screw my floor down. And after the glue dried and I was ready to install I pushed toothpicks threw the backside of each hole so the were sticking up threw the carpet when I laid it in the boat. Then I went around with my STAINLESS steel scre...

Carpet. I have never done carpet, but plan to with my build. Do i carpet my deck after its screwed down or before? I assume i do it after its screwed down. I use contact cement??? i guess i will lay the sheet over the whole deck, tuck the edges, etc.... Is there a tutorial on the site for this? I se...

Dad's 12' Springbok reborn.

i like how the deck lifts at the very front.
I may need to do something like that to mount my front trolling motor.

Blink's 1973 AMF Crestliner 12' V-Hull (Update 03-11-12)

I used aluminum 3/16" rivets to attach the joist hangers, but i put clear silicone in the holes for leakage and behind the joist hanger to act as an isolator. The thing about dissimilar metals though is that even stainless and aluminum will make a battery. Yes, stainless and aluminum isn't ideal, b...

First time seeing your build blink. It's looking good. Curious what you used to fasten the joist hangers. Make sure it's stainless hardware so it doesn't cause you any corrosion issues. Also, if some of the holes will be below the waterline, you may want to put some 5200 on them if you haven't alre...

Blink's 1973 AMF Crestliner 12' V-Hull (Update 03-11-12)

Not sure if I'm thinking the same thing but I used a an older tie down strap. I cut it in 7-8" sections, doubled it over and screwed the loose ends to the bottom of my latch doors, creating a small loop to use a pull to open the hatch. I was thinking something similar. Maybe burning the ends of the...
